2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks for this garbage, Shawn. Clear golden pour with a tall white head. Nose of sugar, corn, and sweet grain. A bit of grape and apple, mild alcohol aroma, and maybe some more sugar. The flavor is very sweet and a little bit boozy. Sugar, corn, mild malt, and sweet grain. Lots of grape and apple juice, too. It’ll get you WBW.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Following the classic Canadian Malt Licka formula, we have a 7%, an 8%, and the almighty 10%. As with the belgian quadruples of our day, most people go after and rate the booziest and craziest of the bunch. I’m more of an 8% guy on both fronts, but man, these 10% beers are nutters. Gold pour. Big, boozy, grape drank, lots of sweet malts, more booze, and some cotton candy. Finishes with hints of an alley, but not in a bad way. Cyclone power? Pssssh, you’re not that tough bro. But you are tasty. 8/10 swills.
